The New S90 R-Design is the
performance variant of the executive sedan and is available from Johnsons Volvo
in Gloucester, Oxford, Solihull and Swindon. This well-designed sporty
iteration features a lowered chassis and comes with plenty of safety equipment
and a range of eye-catching features.
A Car That Stands Out
The model includes an all-new front fascia features a high-gloss black grille, trimmed with a silk-metal surround. Below, a restyled bumper includes integrated cornering-assist LED fog lamps. Elsewhere, the car boasts five-spoke matte-black diamond-cut alloy wheels, folding and heated door mirrors and dual exhaust pipes. All of which are completely unique to this variant to create a car that really stands out.
The R-Design’s sumptuous and spacious cabin is decked out in a carbon fibre-style trim, and is illuminated with an ambient lighting system. Driver and co-passengers will enjoy traveling in contoured sports seats, and the driver can get to grips with a sports steering wheel and perforated leather gear knob, while operating the vehicle’s R-Design pedals.
Four engine options include two four-cylinder twin-turbo charged diesel units. A 187bhp engine produces 400Nm of torque and returns as much as 64.2mpg, and CO2 emissions as low as 116g/km. Alternatively, a 232bhp unit delivers 480Nm of torque, 58.85mpg and a 127g/km CO2 emissions figure. Volvo promises a more energetic road-hugging drive and improved performance. Drivers are to expect the full range of 2-litre, turbocharged diesel four-pots. The former offers front-wheel drive, while the latter comes with all-wheel drive, and both are paired with eight-speed Geartronic automatic transmission.
Advanced Connectivity and Safety
The vehicle’s sound system has yet to be announced but a 12.3-inch Active TFT crystal instrument display is confirmed. It is rumoured that Apple CarPlay and iPad Holder would be some of the additional accessories that can be added to the advanced vehicle. A wide range of driving aids include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keeping Aid, Driver Alert Control, Electronic Stability Control, Hill-start Assist and traffic sign recognition technology. Among the vehicle’s passive safety features are multiple airbags, seatbelt pre-tensioners and load-limiters, childproof rear doors and windows and a collapsible steering column.
